Hey guys!
I'm reading Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I was wondering if anyone had any viewpoints of the book in a post colonialism viewpoint, or in regard to post coloniaslism. Thanks for all of your help!

Mobius 1, despite the obvious love of yourself, I think it is very easy to read Heart of Darkness in a post-colonial way and particularly how it condems the actions of colonists. The Company throughout the novella is actually a metaphor for the colonising country. also apocalypse now is a fantastic movie that is adapted from the book and set in a contemporary setting
